4 servings (serving size: 2 skewers and 3/4 cup rice)

Isaac enjoys Japanese-style grilled specialties like these chicken skewers with soy-mirin marinade. The marinade would also pair nicely with salmon. Serve with sautéed snow peas.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 3 ingredients in a large bowl; add chicken to bowl, and toss to coat. Let stand 15 minutes, turning chicken occasionally.

Step 2

Prepare grill.

Step 3

Remove chicken from bag, reserving marinade. Place marinade in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Cook until reduced to 1/4 cup (about 5 minutes). Thread chicken and bell peppers on 8 (12-inch) wooden skewers. Brush skewers with marinade. Place skewers on grill rack coated with cooking spray. Grill 4 minutes on each side or until done, brushing occasionally with remaining marinade. Remove from grill; sprinkle with sesame seeds. Serve with rice.

What a surprise these turned out to be! I read all of the great reviews so I gave it a whirl, but wasn't actually expecting much. I was delighted to find that a simple, easy recipes turned out to be wonderful. Even my extremely picky husband was chowing down and going back for seconds. I made this with brown rice and some garlic green beans and it was a fantastic meal. I didn't even have to marinate the chicken for the full time. I left them in for about 5 minutes and basted them with the reduced sauce per the recipe. Delicious! And do boil down the marinade. It's amazing and absolutely wonderful drizzled over the cooked chicken with a little extra drizzled over the rice. I can't wait to make it again.
